Déjà Vu! A Year Later, Another Injunction Filed Against City of Bend 

“It’s simple,” said Moey Newbold, a life-long Bend resident who ran last year’s Stop The Drain campaign. “SWIP was a bad idea a year ago. It is still a bad idea today.”

That was what a press release hot-off-the-presses explained, referring to an injunction filed today (not surprisingly) against the City of Bend.

Central Oregon LandWatch and WaterWatch of Oregon filed a lawsuit today in the Oregon Federal District Court seeking an injunction to prevent the U.S. Forest Service from authorizing the City of Bend to begin construction of a new pipeline that will allow for greatly increased water withdrawals from Tumalo Creek. The project involves the installation of a large new pipeline. Its operation could double the City’s current use of 2 billion gallons of Tumalo Creek water per year to over 4 billion gallons.

Stay tuned for more!
